Women’s Aid is the national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children.
They have been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice for over 40 years. They empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of their work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.
Since 1974, they have been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic abuse.
As a federation of over 220 organisations, they provide more than 300 local lifesaving services to women and children across the country.
They provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies. This includes professionals working with survivors or those commissioning domestic abuse services. They award a National Quality Mark for services which meet their quality standards.
Their campaigns achieve change in policy, practice and awareness, encouraging healthy relationship and helping to build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated.
The 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247 (run in partnership with Refuge) and their range of online services, which include the Survivors’ Forum and The Hideout, help hundreds of thousands of women and children every year.
